The Glasgow '• Bulletin," of 2nd August has the following :-— 

tl A Scottish Nerd. — The decline in American tourist traffic in Scotland is, acording to a 
tourist agent with whom I have had a chat, due to our failure to advertise our country's spec- 
ial attractions. A new (feneration Is growing up In U S.A which knows not Scotland, and has 
never heard of Roderick Dim, Fitz James, Bonnie Prince Ch'aivlie, and Mary Queen of Scots, 
The agent suggests the establishment of a well- organised Scottish Tourist Publicity Agenct , 
which would broadcast the fame of the Lowlands and Highland* in the U.S.A. and on the 
Continent."

Peace, Honour and Hood Will 

More than Chrintiaus believe that the Whole Human Family 
will yet Hve together as Brethren. 

THE GREAT CREATOR OF ALL made of one blood all racVs of Humanity 
but out forefathers got separated anil estranged. The confuaion of tongues 
did not cause them to be irreligious, the phenominal success of the Boy Scout move- 
ment, generated by Sir Robert Baden PoWellj demonstrates that latent good-fellow* 
■hip, gratitude and honour can grow and mature. Long ago, the Prophet Zephaniah 
foretold the coming of a perfect language— which, in these latter times, the pedple 
ate longing for in 'order to overcome misunderstandings and kndw and enjoy mutual 
intercourse iti business and pleasure. The walls of Jericho fell very simply, and the 
lingual walls Which have hithertd divided the nations, heed no longer prevent all 
people that on earth do dwell— whatever their creeds, colour or idiosyncrasies— frbiii 
satisfactorily communicating With each other by means of

Esperanto, like English, is made Up froin oilier languages: its roots are taken 
from the same jungle, but scientifically treated in a garden pro bono publico. 

The 11th Annual International Congress was to have been held in Edinburgh in 
1916, but the Great War, which prevented the holding the 10th in Paris the previous 
year, was the means of causing the trarisft-f of the 1 1th to San Francisco. To com- 
memorate th< opening of the Panama Canal a big Exhibition was held there, and a Tuta 1 
Pacifika Esperanto Kttngresd developed into the 11a Tuta Mondo Esperanto Kongreid; 
The 12th Edngrestt Internacia Was held at th Hague, Holland in .1920; the 
13th at Pragttc. in 1921; the 14th at Helsingfors, Finland, In 1922; the 15th a! 
Niirnbefg in 1923, the Ifith at Vienna in 1924. the 17th the following August again at 
Geneva; and the 18th at Edinburgh, in 192© (when the Holy Bible, in 
Esperanto, Was dedicated in St Giles' Cathedral). National congresses are held an- 
nually in all civilised countries, aud international congresses in both hemispheres. 

Esperanto— the language of Peace on Earth and universal brotherhood — is steadily 
spreading. It is much easier to learn and comprehend than any national language, aiid 
does the Work of all. On the Continent during the Great War it was an incalculable 
blessing to Red Cross work add tracing the missing. It Was a Veritable open sesame 
into everything good. The world-wide Boy Scout movement has taken up the study 
of la kara Mngvoi It is used at the great and happy international Jamborees — 
meetings so harmonious that they are appropriately closed by the singing of -'Aulil 
Langsyne. " 

Esperanto has been adopted by the League of Nations, League of Religions, and 
numerous business firinsj tourist organisations and scientific societies everywhere; 
It is, of course, regularly broadcast by wireless.

PREFACE TO 1929-30 EDITION. 



WE have pleasure in producing the Jubilee issue of 
our hardy Annual. 

The early numbers contained the Officials and House- 
holders of Buteshire only. The Anniversaries and Traders 
were absorbed from the West Coast Almanac, issued als 
the New Year, and embracing districts outside Buteshire 
— the phenominal success of which in Mid Argyll, led to 
the establishment of the printing office in Lochgilphead. 

Rothesay is the most attractive and best known. We 
would like to see its spirit of enterprise spreading among 
the other districts. They have each and all something to 
be proud of. These cannot be properly appreciated until 
better known. In the present Directory we continue the 
four distinct parts. 

This Directory is not only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the public libraries of Scotland, England, Ire- 
land and Wales, and also in numerous business houses and 
agencies in busy centres ; besides this, we send copies to 
the passenger steamers communicating with the islands of 
Buteshire, and these are hung up in their cabins. 

The Public Libraries as a rule do not subscribe to 
other than the few large National Directories. The more 
numerous and detailed District Directories would cost too 
much. Eor years we have sent, complimentarily, copies of 
ours — which are much appreciated ; and we are prepared 
to increase this mumber by forwarding other free copies 
to any Libraries to be named by customers giving orders 
to the value o £1. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the continued 
distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
reading matter, we will, on receipt of orders early, keep 
permanent this decided advantage. 

We do not give a full list- of Householders because of 
laok of support ; but our fuller list in MS is available. 

Those who wish Lists of Householders (arranged in 
Streets and Wards) can get that in the Official Voters' Roll 
— in whole or. in parts. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and careful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
continual changes. 

HIGGLE & CO., Printers and Publishers 
Rothesay, July, 1929. 

P. S.— Will the many persons who consult the Bute County Directory 
in the Libraries, Reading Rooms, Banks, Offices. Shops, etc. . through- 
out the County and beyond it, free of charge, please remember that they 
are indebted for this privilege to the patronage of our Subscribers and 
Advertisers.

is the same. The book, which runs into 144 pp., should be extremely useful and con- 
venient for the residents of the county of islands, as well as to visitors, especially those 
who have business dealings with the inhabitants.— Largs and Millport Neivs 

This useful publication is again to hand. The publishers have been so enter 
prising as regards its compilation that the Directory is now an absolute necessity to 
business people who have dealings with the picturesque County of Bute. It should bs 
noted that the Directory also contains a useful almanac. — Ardrossan Herald,

LONG LIVE THE BUTE DIRECTORY 

The Opinions of the Press and the Acknowledgments of Libraries 

are as complimentary as ever. The " Glasgow Evening News" makes the following 
appreciatwn of " L ^cal Colour. — The compilers of the Bute County Directory 
bave an ingenious method of making up the local colour and stimulating local pride 
instead of rilling up the Calendar with the stock anniversaries, they have put against 
eath date a local happening." Thus -[Two events mentioned]. " It is certainly an 
idea that makes for ' atmosphere. ' "

COUNTY OF BUTE. 

THE COUNTY OF BUTE comprises the seven islands in the Firth ot Clyde, viz, 
— Bute, the most populous; Arran, the largest ; the Great and Little 
Cumbraes, off the Ayrsliire Coast; Holy Isle and Pladda, off Avian; and Inch- 
harnock, off Bute. 

The total Area of the County (land and water, exclusive of tidal water) is 
139,658 acres, of which 53,510 are mountain and heath lands used for grazing. 3,806 
acres are under plantations, and 794 are covered with water There are 25,981 acres 
under all kinds of crops, bare fallow and grass, which is a gradual inroad on the 
mountain heath and hitherto uncultivated land. 

The principal Industries are agriculture, horticulture, and fishing The islandt 
possess great and varied natural attractions, and are in the forefront as holiday resorts. 

The Population of the County (including its Burghs of Rothesay and 
Millport) in 1801 was 11,791 ; 1831, 14.151: 1861, 16,331; 1881, 17,657. In 
1891 it was 18,248 (8,057 males and 10,197 females) ; and in 1901, 18,786 (8,412 
males and 10,374 females) — being an increase of 255 in the ten years — 2 - l per'cent 
There were 4,270 inhabited houses in the islands. 
For 1911, the figures were as follows :— - 

Males. Females. 
Arran - - - 2,169 2,402 

Bute (including Rothesay) 5,081 6,781 

Cumbrae - - - 704 992 

"The increased total issued in the Quarterly Return of the Registrar- 
General compared with the returns lodged with the Sheriff-Clerk, 
may be accounted for by the enumeration of the shipping. 
the decreases since 1901 are as follows : Arran, 209; Bute, 330 ; Cumbrae, 62 — 601. 

The population at the postponed 1921 census [taken in June instead of April] for the 
county, was 33,711 (13,880 males and 19,831 females)— being an increase of 15,525 

over 1911.

Parish of North Bute. 

THIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connected by tram- 
way. Karnes Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in the 
aountrv, and was the ancient seat of the Bannatynes. The village was named after 
that fam ily — two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Bannockburn. 

At the 1921 census, (taken in June instead of April) the parish contained 1201 
males and 1529 females— total, 2730.

The Isle of Arran. 

' I "'HIS island, the largest in the group, is famous for the grandeur of its scenery and 
1 the variety of its geological deposits. The island is 36 miles in length, 
20 in breadth, and is divided into two parishes — Kilbride on the east, and Kilmory 
in the west. The late King Edward and Queen Alexandra spent a very pleasant 
holiday in the island after their postponed Coronation in August, 1902, and witnessed 
some very interesting sheep dog trials — which lengthened their stay

CHAR MoftheHEA THER 

A SPRIG of SCOTS HEATHER is as lightly thought of at 
hame as a drink of cold water (of which there is more than 
enough to spare), but it is an inspiration and a valued reminder 
of the pleasantest of memories to Scots and their friends abroad. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become ex- 
ceedingly popular among those who work for human brotherhood. 

We produced Victory Commemoration Bookmarks — in con- 
nection with the Armistice, the Signing of Peace and the succeed- 
ing Joy Day Celebrations, — which were considered very appro- 
priate. 

Remember Friends Abroad. 

While enjoying holidays remember to gather sprigs to sendjto 
friends abroad, or in response to appeals you will see in leading 
Scottish weekly newspapers. 

We have for years sent boxesfull of heather to friends and so- 
cieties abroad. We frequently respond to newspaper appeals, and 
the following is a sample of the acknowledgments received :, — 

East London, C. P., So. Africa, 18thj>c. ^ 

Mr George Higgie, 22 Bridge St., Rolliesay, Scotland. ■MKssnrur-' 

On behalf of the East London Caledonian Society I wish to thank you for being 
so kind in responding to my appeal for heather, which was sold on our Patron Saint s 
Day, and realised the very handsome sum of £265 5/11, and has been forwarded to 
the fund for disabled Sailors and Soldiers The heather was received in first-class 
condition, and was much prized — Yours faithfully, James Forbes, 

Convener of Heather Committee. 
It is not only Scots abroad who enjoy a sprig of something that actually grew 
at hame. The Glasgow ' Evening Times,' while the above acknowledgment was on the 
ocean, printed the following ; — " Flower girls in Argyle Street are making brave dis- 
play with the mimosa, which comes to us from the Continent before the swallows or 
even the daffodils dare. It is one of the indications, after the shortest day, that 
somewhere the sun is shining, and that winter is waning. Australians in town are 
greatly cheered by the golden glory, for the mimosa is the wattle of their homeland, 
carrying with it the same significance as the heather to a Scot abroad." 

Colonials and others on holiday in this country, have thanked us personally for 
sending them souvenirs of Scotland when far away; and others have reciprocated by 
sending preserved leaves and flowers from their distant lands. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become exceedingly popular. 
Botanical Specimens go through the post at letter, sample or parcel rates.

The Bute County Directory 

is the only Publication of the kind printed and 
published in Buteshire. Its data is cai*efully 
compiled, and much time and attention is devoted 
each year to the careful investigation and noting 
of the necessary alterations in the personnel ©f the 
occupants of public offices, the correct addresses 
of the general inhabitants, and the latest changes 
amongst those engaged in business. 

The earliest publications connected with llothe- 
say were Directories, and they are interesting 
reading even at this time of day. 

Our publication not only includes the Burgh of 
Rothesay (where it has long been most appreciated, 
but embraces the whole of the County of Bute — 
from the outlying districts of which more interest 
is respectfully solicited. 

Owing to the increased prices of material and 
wages, we have been compelled to raise our tariff 
from pre-war issues, but that advance is not nearly 
equal to the increased cost of production : We de- 
sire not the curtailing of our information, but the 
continuing of everything as full as possible.

SHORTHAND 

TYPEWRITING, 

ESPERANTO, -> 

BOOK-KEEPING. 



ME HIGGIE'S CLASSES FOR PEAGTICAL INSTRUC- 
TION are conducted during the two Winter Quarters- 
October till December and January till March. 

PRIVATE TUITION BY ARRANGEMENT. 
ShDPthand continues to be taught with a view to its subsequent useful 
ncss in Business and Professionally. 

In Typewriting" special attention is devoted to Punctuation and Capital- 
isation— -a thorough knowledge of which is absolutely necessary in Practical Printing 
and cannot longer be neglected by those aspiring to be First-Class Typists. 

Esperanto, — This wonderful International Language is already used for 
Business and Pleasure in all parts i.f the world. Mr Higgie is in touch with import- 
ant regions all over the world, and regularly corresponds with persons everywhere 
— notwithstanding their different national languages. 

This auxiliary language anticipates the happy time when there will be " Peace 
on earth and good will to men," which is coming yet in spite of the present times of 
" great tribulation" — caused by covetousness, selfishness, greed, and wanton hindrance 
to peaceful re construction. The efficacy of the International language in tracing miss- 
ing friends and making new ones has been and is being repeatedly evidenced. 

Anticipating the boom in International Trading after the World War, experi- 
ments by means of inter-correspondence in Esperanto are being made by business firms 
throughout the world with eminently satisfactory results. It is not the tyrants but the 
"meek who shall inherit the earth " The blatant, self-righteous and arrogant despost 
were be.aten, but Righteousness is yet to be exalted, and frightfulness loathed. The 
longed- or league of Nations is evolving, when harmony and good-will shall yet reign 
in spite of all present discord and opposition — but not without many sacrities, much 
service and suffering. Prosperity will not come through desiring something for no- 
thing, but through universal patient industry for the public good. 

Book-Keeping 1 . — Instruction given in Book-Keeping and other Up-to - 
Date Business .Methods. Advertisement Writing is a Present Day Enviable Pro- 
fession, and the ground-work and minutiae have long been familiar to Mr Higgie, a 
practical Printer. 

Messrs HIGGIE & CDY.'S ESPERANTO PUBLICATIONS 
are known, read and appreciated throughout the whole civilised world. Many of the 
contributions are written by up-to-date foreigners.

S PEL 1ST G REFORM, 

ALL LANGDAGESJREAD AT SIGHT. 

WHEN Our Manager was abroad Several years ago, he, fdf : 
amusement, to the, delight and amazement of his friends,- 
I used to write from their dictation, sentences in any language, and 
I read them correctly— at least, perfectly understood to those who 
heard. Of course, the shorthand writing remained a mystery to 
| the uninitiated, although perfectly intelligible to those who had 
^■watered the art. Phonetic Longhand is better : itdoesn't require 
j previous study to read foreign words — only a glance at the new 
| letters added to the present oommon roman alphabet, by which the 
\ spelling of the gi owing English is unnecessarily restricted. We 
^Bo not like the word revolution^ because it smells of violent ac- 
tion, but isn't it pitiful to see the various ways English and other 
words are pronounced different from the printed spelling 'I 
There is no need for that, when the extended roman alphabet 
(on which Pitman's World-wide Shorthand is founded) is avail- 
able. We have got Sir Isaac Pitman & Son's permission, to 
wet a fount of Phonetic Longhand type, and are preparing to 
issue a series of monthly brochures dedicated to 

SKOTS at H8M and ABRQD, and Who wi Rem iWgeder, 
printed in the comon and reformed spelling, and also phono= 
graphy. We intended to print one of Osian's poems in the re- 
formed spelling, but meanwhile have to contant ourselves with a 
quotation from the very old classic language — 

in Scot's Gaelic. 
Mar ghath Soluisdo'm anamfein a sgeula na haimsir a dh-fhalbh. 

Translation. 

As a beam of light to my own soul is a tale of the time that is gone: 

_^vd Eernetik Printhj) 

Mar gya series dom ansm fen ha sksla na hamijar a gya gelit; 

Az a bim ov ljt tu mj ern serl iz a tel ov &e tjm ctat is gon. 

We intend to treat similarly special quotations from the Irish 

and Welsh Gaelic, if not, indeed, from the numerous Strange 

Languges (spoken by Persons of Other Lands at the- 

Jamboree jheld at Birkenhead in August, 1929, and else 

where. If Pitmanites will please 5end us a fully vocalized proverb 

in any language (with the meaning translated into Esperanto) we 

will reproduce them pro bono publcio. *. ' ■ 

How's that for tne promotion of world friendship ?
